My mom died (in her late fifties of this liver disease).I always felt that it could be related to her poor diet.Over the years,other family members have had digestion and skin problems and have found relief from gluten free diets.My dad's brother has an allergy to wheat.My sister suffered for years with migraines .I was diagnosed with ADD (in my 40s) and am anemic.No doctor has ever suggested a gluten intolerence.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  According to research from Mayo clinic, It's not clear what causes primary biliary cirrhosis. Many experts consider primary biliary cirrhosis an autoimmune disease in which the body turns against its own cells. Here's a site that might be helpful on cirrhosis. http://www.empowher.com/condition/cirrhosis
